NO after school care or study hall sessions will be offered at the middle or high school level.  All middle school and high school students will be going home at the half day dismissal time.


Per board policy, a parent or guardian of a kindergarten student must be present at the bus stop when he/she is dropped off. Students who cannot be dropped at their designated stop because a parent or guardian is not there, will be returned to their school for pick up.

These half days are essential components for professional development of staff on curriculum and district initiatives, and we appreciate your cooperation and support as we hold our half days this year. If you have questions, please contact your school principal.
